DIY Halloween Background + FREE Coloring Page
Hi! It’s Mindy from My Creative Scoop! I seriously cannot believe it’s already October!!! Today I’m going to show you a super fun background. We are going to Create a Halloween Background. Fun, right!
Let’s gather our supplies:
- Download your FREE Witch Printable HERE.
- Make sure you print it on Copic friendly cardstock. I use Cryogen Cardstock but I also recommend Copic x-Press it Blending Card.
- You will need the following Copic Markers for the tutorial. N3, N5, YG67, YG17, YG13.
- You will also need a bottle of Copic Blending Solution and a Copic Blender Pen.
Let’s get started!
- Step 1. Color the inside of the cloud using you N5 Copic Marker. Leave a gap between the cloud and the Witch. Take N3 and go around the outer part of the cloud outline.
- Step 2. Fill in the area between the cloud and the Witch using YG13.
- Step 3. To soften the line between the N5 and the YG13, go over the area where these two colors meet using N3.
- Step 4. Take some blending solution and a sponge and blot the cloud lightening it and giving it a cloudy texture.
We are going to create a green bubble effect. Kind of like a witches brew coming through that big puffy cloud of smoke.
- Step 5. Take your YG67 and create different sized U’s all throughout the smoke.
- Step 6. Then fill in the U using YG13.
- Step 7. Then take your N5 and darken the bottom of the bubble (where we first put the YG67 U) Make sure you can still see the YG67 U, though.
- Step 8. Then take your blender pen and lighten under the shadow of the bubble.
- Step 9. I went back and added more bubbles, using the same process. Make all size bubbles.
And that’s it! You just created a super fun and spooky DIY Halloween Background!
I hope you enjoyed this technique on how to Create a DIY Halloween Background using Copic Markers. This technique would look in any colors. You can use a blue background and make bubbles that are blue green, pink purple or even a combo of all those colors. Once you get this technique down you will be creating some awesome backgrounds.
